Fabindia School
Name of my school is Fabindia,
Because it is in India.

मातृभूमि का सम्मान
देश की हिलती बुनियाद आज
उलझ रही है सत्ता कहाँ कहाँ
 हो रहा है पतन चारों ओर
पहले जैसी देशभक्ति का उन्माद कहाँ
हम कहते है आज़ाद है । कहो
आज़ाद होकर भी आज़ाद कहाँ
कौन सुनता है आवाज़ सत्य की
उलझ रहे है सब ,कहो !
निर्विवाद कौन यहाँ
सम्मान तो छोड़ो मातृभूमि का ।
अभिमान भी नहीं,
गौरव और गरिमा का,कहीं आभास भी नहीं
गया कहाँ वो प्रकाशित करने वाला
मातृभूमि के नाम पर उदित होने वाला
स्वदेश प्रेम का वह 'दिनेश ' ही कहाँ
पुकार है सबसे सचेत हो जाने की
हमारा कर्म हमारा धर्म
हमारा स्वाभिमान है वतन का
कहीं विरोध यह अद्धैत सा
कारण न बन जाये पतन का

Examinations
Oh! The word Examination,
Is full of stress and tension.
When Examination is near,
From everywhere you here,

Oh! God, now what to do just study, study & study
And no play, play, play.
Mind is full of Language, Science & Math.
When will Examination get over and I will be free
To just play, play & play.

हिंदी में आता परिवर्तन
हिंदी में प्रतिपल परिवर्तन होता रहा है। इसके कई कारण थे जैसे - यातायात के साधनों का विस्तार, संचार के साधनों का विस्तार इत्यादि। हर क्षेत्र विशेष में बोली जाने वाली हिंदी पर उस स्थान की स्थानीय भाषा या बोली का प्रभाव स्पष्ट दृष्टिगोचर होता है।  राजस्थान में बोली जाने वाली हिंदी पर मारवाड़ी का प्रभाव दिखता है तो उत्तरप्रदेश की हिंदी पर अवधि और ब्रज का मेल दिखता है, बम्बईया हिंदी तो विशेष उल्लेखनीय है। ये उपभाषाएँ एवं बोलियाँ ही हिंदी को प्रगाढ़ बनाती है तथा परिवर्तन के लिये उत्तरदायी है। जहाँ तक इस परिवर्तन की बात है ये अचानक से नहीं होता बल्कि आहिस्ता -आहिस्ता होता रहता है तथा लम्बे समय पश्चात् हमारा ध्यान उस पर जाता है। कब, किस भाषा का शब्द हिंदी ने अपने में समाहित कर लिया इसका आभास तक नहीं  पाता। हिंदी उदार है, हिंदी व्यापक है, इसमें संग्रहण की क्षमता है तभी तो यह अन्य भाषाओं के शब्दों को हुबहू या थोड़ा बहुत परिमार्जित करके स्वयं में समाहित कर लेती है। ये हिंदी की एक अनोखी विशेषता है, ये काम संस्कृत भी नहीं कर सकती। विशाल हृदय रखने वाला ही सबको साथ लेकर चल सकता है। हिंदी का हृदय विशाल है तभी तो इसे विशालतम जनसमुदाय की भाषा होने का गौरव प्राप्त है। इन परिवर्तनों से हिंदी और अधिक पुष्ट हो रही है।

Jackson Wagner in conversation with Kushagra
(Volunteer Teacher from California)
(ED:Editor; J.W.: Jackson Wagner)
Ed: First of all Jackson, how did you come to know about The Fabindia School?
J.W: From Sukey Wagner, my grandmother. She is a friend of Ms. Bim Bissell and she also raises funds for the JBSF.
ED: What is your qualification? 
J.W: I have done Graduation from Calorado University.
ED: Why did you decide to teach after your graduation?
J.W: I don’t know, maybe I was free and I wanted to do some work.
                       
Ed: Why did you decide to join Fabindia School only?                        
J.W: There are two reasons for it. First is that the school in Bhutan is not an English medium school. It would be difficult for me to make friends. And Sukey, my grandmother wanted me to visit The Fabindia School. It was wonderful that I came to India.
ED: If you have to give two messages to Fabindia School then what you will give?
J.W: I don’t know but teachers should teach students in English. Library should be open for all the students and students should also learn from it.
ED: What two things you would like to take?
J.W: All things are good. I would like to take is some library books and my sweet memories, teaching for the first time and my experience being with the students. All were so wonderful I will never be able to forget my experience and these memories will always remain afresh down in my heart.  
Ed: Thank You Jackson for your contribution in teaching Physics and Science and your stay in the school.

होली
होली में तो सब मैले हो गए
रंग जो रंगीन थे रंगहीन हो गए।

पराये तो पराये ही थे
अपने भी पराये हो गए।

होली के रंगों की बरसात में
तन मन -रंग जाता था।

मिटा कर गिले -शिकवे ,
दुश्मन भी दोस्त बन जाता था।

लाल, पीला, हरा, गुलाबी
भर -भर पिचकारी उड़ाते थे ,
घर -घर जाकर झूम -झूमकर
रंग दिलों में भर जाते थे।

कारण क्या है  ,क्या पता ,क्यों है तकरार
स्वार्थ है या है अभिमान खाई है माया की या रिश्तों  की

प्यार की तलवार और होली का प्यार
तोड़ देश नफ़रत  की दीवार

बाजे ढ़ोल ,मंजीरे और मृदंग
दोस्त बन दुश्मन होली खेले संग
उड़ाए एक दूजे  पर ,प्रेम का रंग

THE SCINDIA SCHOOL EXCHANGE REPORT 
Exchange Programs are always amazing and bring rewarding experience. Our experience at The Scindia School was a wonderful experience. Nine students escorted by Ms. Usha Pawar visited The Scindia School, Gwalior on 17th February. The five days' stay at The Scindia School was full of enthusiasm, discoveries, fun, experience and frolic. It was a great learning experience for both, students and our escort teacher.

Our students were made to stay with the boys in the boarding houses so that they may experience hostel life. Three students stayed in Nimaji House, three in Dataji House and two in Kanerkhed House. Ms. Usha Pawar and Vaishali Rao stayed in Jankoji House Guest Room (where Ms. Deepika Tandon- our Principal was the Housemaster). These houses were in the Junior Campus. For breakfast, lunch and dinner we had to go to the Senior Campus as the Dining Hall was there.

We visited the entire school campus and attended the School on 19th February. Students of Class VIII and VII were sent to attend four lessons after the Assembly. Ms. Usha Pawar was escorted by Ms. Jaiamala Patil to the Paper Mache Department. We learned to make many things out of paper pulp. We made pen holders, monuments, cards etc,. Every day, after four lessons, rest of the students also joined us. We visited the Tie & Dye Department, Wood Work Department and Stone Carving Department; learnt to tie and dye handkerchiefs with beautiful designs. We carved a heart out of white marble and the name of our Principal.

We appreciate the work that Scindians do. The opportunity that we got helped us to get  exposure and polish our talent better. In the evening at 4:00 P.M., we played sports in the school's regular games time. We also attended a lot of classroom activities. We learnt to make many decorative things. The students of The Scindia School were very friendly and cooperative. It was a wonderful experience. We are proud to say that we are two 'Indians'- "Fabindians” and “Scindians”.

Thank you Mr. Samik Ghosh for inviting us to your School. Thanks to Ms. Rakhi Sharma and Ms. Gurusharan Kaur who made arrangements to make our stay comfortable at school. Thanks to Ms. Jaimala Patil for being such a great help in the Art & Craft Dept. We would also like to thank our Principal who gave us this opportunity and we would like to thank all those who worked behind the curtain to make this possible as a very rich experience. We also visited the Gwalior Fort and went to shop in the city. We were applauded and appreciated greatly. This learning experience has made us more creative and smart.

अपने मन में कुछ भरने की आशा
उज्जवल हो जीवन सबका
यह छोटी सी आशा है।
देश से मिटे भ्रष्टाचार,
गरीबी पर हो प्रहार,
काला धन आये देश में ,
लाए फिर से नई बहार,
सोने की चिड़िया कहलाए,
घी दूध की नदियाँ बह जाये
ऐसी ही आशा है।
नेता तो बन जाये जननेता ,
लगे उनको कि वो है विजेता ,
देश में  लाये विकास की गंगा ,
एक परिवार लगे उनको जनता ,
परिवार का मुखिया बन जाए
ऐसी ही आशा है
बच्चों के हाथों में बचपन,
खेलने के लिए हो खिलौने
पढ़ने को सतरंगी किताबें,
हो बाग़ में सैर सपाटे,
शिक्षा का सम्बल मिल जाए,
बाल मजदूरी  फिर खो जाए
ऐसी ही आशा है
औरत का हो सम्मान निराला,
हर हाथ हो उसका रखवाला,
घूमे फिर स्वछंद देश में ,
हो अपमान हो तिरस्कार,
बुरी बात सोचें  मन मे,
फिर से पावन बन जाएं
